And staff haven’t let the lockdown dampen their spirits either, making sure the people they support are still taking part in activities and enjoying the sunshine
“We have been doing lots of activities since lockdown, I know the people we support have really missed going to The Maltings day service so we have tried to do as many activities as we can so they don’t miss it so much. We have been doing painting, picnic lunches, board games – we even ordered a giant inflatable football so the residents in wheelchairs can have a play with it in the garden. They have absolutely loved it. Also they have been involved in the shopping every week.
We have a really lovely garden so it has been brilliant to make use out of it in the nice weather. I’m really looking forward to having everyone together for a BBQ once lockdown is lifted to say thank you to The Maltings day service staff who have been working here helping us, and to the parents for supporting us.
“I don’t know how to put into words how amazing the team has been since lockdown, I just want to say a huge thank you for their hard work and effort. We have a relatively new team and have had to train them up quickly but they have just been incredible. Everyone has just worked so well together, and going above and beyond. It is just incredible what they are doing.”
